7:00 am
aggressive agenda in his inaugural speech. >> we are made for this moment and we will seize it, so long as we seize it together. >> it's a very unusual speech in that there were no real memorable lines. >> when arctic blasts and a winter storm could make for a messy and dangerous commute all over new england this morning. and ohio getting pounded, blowing snow is being blamed for this 86-car pile-up. >> worst thing i've ever seen. three americans are among the dead in algeria, the sarhara desert refinery. prince harrys had spoken at length about life on the front lines. a police pursuit comes to a crash into the streets of burbank. >> whoa, there you go there you go spin into the yard. a woman fell onto the track at a metro station in madrid opinion an off-duty policeman helped the woman to safety. ahh!
7:01 am
woo! >> all that -- >> holy! >> the first lady waving beside him, waving right at my position. >> wyatt i believe the president just blew you a kiss. has it changed your mind about what you want to do with your life? >> yeah i sort of want to be president. >> as we're walking out he was as he said savoring the moment so folks, i raise my glass to a man, i'm toasting you, michelle. there once was a name barack whose re-election came as a shock, he raised taxes i pay and then turned marriage gay and now he's coming after your glock. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs morning news." i'm charlie rose in new york. norah o'donnell is in washington. on the morning after a very long inauguration day. >> that's right, d.c. police say
7:02 am
more than 800,000 people came to the national mall to see president obama's swearing in. thousands of them stayed around to join the president for the inaugural parties last night, bill plante is at the white house. bill good morning. >> reporter: good morning, and good morning out west. the first event on this morning after happens in this hour the president and vice president and their wives attend the national prayer service. last night, the east room of the white house was the place for the hottest afterparty in town. entertainers like kelly clarkson and john legend, lots of politicians, friends of the president, all after the two official inaugural balls. >> my dance partner, michelle obama. >> reporter: in a dress designed by jason wu the first lady dazzled at the commander in chief's ball. ♪ i'm so in love with you ♪ >> reporter: where she took the first dance with her husband as jennifer hudson sang.
7:03 am
early president obama told the ball goers why the day was remark remarkable. >> today we experience the majesty of our democracy, a ritual only possible in a form of government that is of and by and for the people. >> reporter: in his inaugural address he intends to operate more boldly in his second term. he put aside calls for bipartisanship and sent republicans a message, the election was an affirmation of his view of government. >> the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not zap our initiative. they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> reporter: and as the white house and republicans prepare to debate ways to cut the deficit, he was adam ant. >> we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing
7:04 am
in the generation that will build its future. >> reporter: in his speech mr. obama called on the nation to respond to climate change an issue he's hardly mentioned in recent years and on the birthday of dr. martin luther king jr. he equated the struggle for gay rights with the struggle for civil rights. >> our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. >> reporter: at the luncheon which followed a more bipartisan tone. speaker of the house john boehner presented the president with a gift and good wish. >> in the spirit of harmony i'm proud to present the flag that flew over this battalion of democracy today to president barack obama and vice president joe biden, and to you gentlemen i say, congratulations, and godspeed. >> reporter: the most poignant picture of the day was this the president going inside from the west front of the capitol, pausing and turning for one last look down the vast expanse of the national mall.
7:05 am
another thing he thought he might not see, some daylight on the debt limit fight. republicans said monday they would vote tomorrow to raise the debt limit for three months that delays at least for a while another showdown on the debt which could result in closing down the government. and in just three weeks we get the second act of the president's inaugural address, his state of the union speech. there he will lay out more specifics and washington will be waiting to see if the confrontation continues. norah, charlie? >> bill plante thank you. with us now is the number three republican in the house, congressman kevin mccarthy of california the house majority whip. good morning. >> good morning, thanks for having me. >> if you look at the headlines in the paper they all say president obama laid out a strong liberal vision for the second person. did you find the speech to be conciliatory or confrontational? >> i was more hopeful you'd hear
7:06 am
more bipartisanship i was hoping we'd have a second term different than the first term. we have big problems in america and normally in divided government we achieve big things. think about when reagan was president, he had democrats in power, they reformed the tax code. bill clinton had newt gingrich and reformed welfare and balanced the budget. we're all in this together. >> it almost seems like the president was sort of saying look, we fought over this in the election and now the election has been decided and that he was elected and he at one point sort of took on those in your party who have called americans takers for wanting more entitlements like medicare and social security. that was a word that paul ryan had used takers. what did you make of that? >> it was a miss-take of what we've been doing. the whole republicans have been doing is trying to protect medicare and social security make it there for the next generation. we believe it's porntd and we believe in greater opportunity and opportunity. >> you heard the president, he said "i reject the idea that you
7:07 am
can't keep those entitlements safe and invest in our future in things like education." >> the first thing you can't do any of that without having accountability in a budget. that's why we're taking something up that makes both houses pass a budget or they don't get paid. think about it the last time the senate has passed a budget the ipad wasn't even invented yet. >> congressman, you're going to vote on the debt ceiling. when you make that vote most people believe it's a concession, and you have a new legislative strategy. do you believe you will be able to force a budget by april 15th? >> well, i think the american people expect a more accountable, effective and efficient government. the number one thing all elected officials to do to pass a budget, every household does it. how can you plan for the future how can you do anything the president says he wants to do about investing in the future if you don't have a budget? you can't invest for your kids' college, you can't set aside what you're going to pay for
7:08 am
your house payment or anything. the government has to pass one and the senate has not passed one in almost four years. that has caused a lot of the debt and the uncertainty we have today. >> what's going to happen in the house that will force the senate to pass the budget. >> the first thing that will happen is we'll do a short term debt limit increase so it will go to the senate and if the senate sits there it creates a major problem for america and financial markets. i've listened to the white house, they say they agree with this. i think harry reid one, should pass a budget and move it forward. we give him until may 1st, april 15th is the deadline. it's what they're supposed to do. >> congressman we saw you on the podium yesterday enjoying beyonce and jay-z, caught you taking pictures of them and i know we have the actual picture that you took. you were taken with them. >> well i'm a very big fan, but we were walking at the same time and paul ryan is a good friend i was telling paul turn around and asking beyonce to turn around, i was taking a picture
7:09 am
of them and when you leave you got to think, i said would you like to go out to the podium i'll take a picture of them. they went out there and i took a picture for them. >> congressman good to see you. thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. charlie? during the inauguration u.s. officials confirmed three american citizens died and seven others escaped in last week's hostage drama in north africa victor lovelady gordon lee rowan and frederick buttaccio were killed. some of the survivors have been taken, allen pizzey is in italy. >> reporter: the american facility is actually inside an italian military base where released hostages are brought for medical and psychological checks and intelligence debriefing. coffins arrived to take out the bodies of the 32 victims who came from eight different countries. some were so disfigured they will have to be identified using
7:10 am
dna. the algerian prime minister said the attackers came from at least seven countries, including canada, and defended the operation against them. terrorists cannot be harbored in algeria and cannot be tolerated in algaia abdelmalek sellal said. the men had been willing to negotiate or die. they pledged before god to achieve victory, mokhtar belmokhtar said or restore pride and attain martyrdom. victor lovelady from texas, near houston, had only been at the gas plant ten days his daughter, erin said. >> we asked him all the time do you feel safe, if you don't feel safe you don't have to go. he says nothing's happened there in so long and my friends have been doing it for so long it's fine, erin it's so safe we've
7:11 am
got protection. >> reporter: algerian tv says this amateur video shows some of the attackers inside the gas plant and the body of a victim on the ground. many of those who survived only did so by their own initiative and luck. tony griesdale simply hid. >> i knocked down the lights and kept quiet. >> reporter: joseph bellmaceda got caught. the algerians seemed to have help from worker its inside the plant. at least three of the attackers are captured alive, there's plenty more where they came from, in the emerging belt of terrorism right across north africa. norah, charlie? >> allen, thank you. john miller former assistant fbi director, good morning. >> good morning. >> what do you make of this new statement that says these attacks will continue?
7:12 am
>> one it says the group is doubling down. you would look at this through any normal prism, say it was a stunning defeat. they're not going to look at it that way. their people have gone to martyrdom, they'll get their reward in heaven, now on the map because they got publicity and that will affect places where they have a footprint, that could be libya, niger, mali chad, you know, anywhere in the region. >> northern africa is certainly a focal point. what does it mean that two of the hostage takers were canadian? that doesn't seem to sort of fit with the normal description of these terrorists. >> that could mean a couple of things, which is they have a successful recruiting arm over the internet to get canadians to come over. it could mean that they were algerians who went to canada to receive asylum and then were recruited by the group but the way the synapse of the intelligence community and the fbi are firing they're going to say canadians, united states next door, who are these guys? what are their network what are
7:13 am
their finances, what are theire-mail their communications. they're scrambling to figure out the fact that they came from here, is there something back here on the other side that needs to be looked at more closely. >> are they likely to conclude, john, it's more of a threat to the united states? >> i think they're goi experience here where groups that were located overseas that seemed to have no footprints here have made threats to attack places like washington, new york, and then in the case of the truck bomb in times square we've seen those threats come true. the internet has become an amazing mobilizer to bring people together in that world. >> john miller thanks. a dangerous cold snap is gripping much of the nation. it is ten degrees with lots of blowing snow this morning in cleveland, single-digit temperatures are expected in areas from the dakotas to new england. snow, ice and poor visibility are blamed for an 86-car pile-up on interstate 275 near
7:14 am
cincinnati. 12-year-old girl was killed. meteorologist mike augustyniak is watching the cold weather this morning. >> thanks, charlie and norah. it's been brutally cold again this morning, sitting at 9 below in the twin cities of minneapolis and st. paul, 25 below in international falls, marquette 15 below. windchills approaching 40 below in international falls, 27 below in green bay, 31 below in marquette and chicago along with detroit in the teens below zero when you factor in that wind. at least here in the upper midwest it's actually better than yesterday. the coldest windchill yesterday, little town on the north shore of lake spearer, grand marais 54 below. 40 below in minot. coming up dangerous amounts of cold. windchills 25 to 35 below.

7:16 am
brother, san francisco coach jim harbaugh. they talked yesterday about-facing each other on football's biggest stage. >> this team that we're going to play is a great football team. they're extremely well-coached, i'd have to say. i think jim's just done a great job with the team i'm proud of him and what he's accomplished as a coach, but more so as a man, you know as a family man, as a father as a husband, as a brother and son. >> well i think it's a blessing and a curse. you know blessing because you know, that is my brother's team. the curse part would be that you know the talk of two brothers playing in the super bowl and what that takes away from, you know, the players that are in the game. you know they're the ones that have the most to do with it and they're the ones we should be talking about. >> we also have this to talk about, a family photo of the two coaches from many years ago, that's john on the left and jim on the right, with their sister joanie. you can see the harbaughs go

"the washington post" says the national high school graduation rate has reached a 40-year high a new estimate shows 78% of students in the class of 2010 earned a diploma within four years of starting high school. analysts say the soft economy may be one reason that more students are staying in school. good morning, one last dry day before it looks like we head back to some wintry weather outside. enjoy it while it's around. until the san jose area, we have clear skies, a few high clouds drifting well overhead, but more clouds are on the way. you can see them gathering off the coastline. it will stay dry but by tomorrow that all changes. a chance of rain returning to the bay area. 50s and 60s for highs today. showers tomorrow.

for the first time over both super bowl teaches are
7:29 am
coached by brothers. isn't that cool? yeah. today their fourth told them, boys, no -- their father told them boys no matter what happens, today i'll only be disappointed in one of you. welcome back to "cbs this morning," i'm charlie rose in new york. nora o'donnell is in washington. good morning. >> you excited about the super bowl? >> you bet i am. >> i'm excited to be in new orleans -- >> how was washington late last night? >> i went to bed early because we get up early, but this were lots of parties here in washington and certainly apparently a very late night party at the white house. we'll have more on that later. and royal watchers have been focused on prince william and kate but now prince harry is back in the spotlight. he's coming home after his second military deployment to afghanistan. and he's sharing never-before-heard details about his mission and the mistakes of his private life. mark phillips is in london. mark good morning. >> reporter: good morning. you're right we haven't seen much of prince harry lately. and that's not an accident. he has been away at war.
7:30 am
but the prince who can't stop making news seems to be making up for lost time. the warrior prince is all over the headlines again today, and here's why. for five months prince harry has been living the life he clearly prefers to the one he'd been dealt. there are no royal restrictions to his royal as a helicopter co-pilot gunner on duty in afghanistan. here he's the pistol-packing warrior prince and his pistol is an apache gunship. even here it can be hard for him to stay out of the headlines. had he actually killed the taliban, he was asked. the answer is ambiguous. it's part of the job, he says. >> reporter: you have and you will kill the enemy? >> yeah. lots of people have. you know the squadron's been out here with everyone firing a certain amount. probably a little bit more than this time last year to a certain extent. people trying to -- we'll do it
7:31 am
again i suppose. it's not the reason i do this job. the reason i did this job is to get back out here and carry on. >> reporter: the interviewers with harry were often interrupted as his crew was scrambled for a mission. their job here is to provide cover for ground troops. and whether he's actually fire ted enemy or hit any is open to interpretation. but he does take collective responsibility. this is harry's second deployment to afghanistan. the first one was cut short when weather -- when news he was there was cut short and it thought wiser to bring him home. this time the british media agreed to shut up in exchange for a series of interviews once his tour was over. still, it was a chance to ask him not just about his soldierly life but his whole life. and there are revealing moments. not quite as revealing as the strip pool game he was caught
7:32 am
playing on a predeployment visit to las vegas. and here, there was something like contrition if not regret. >> don't really want to get into details of what i think or what other people think. at the end of the day, i let myself down, let my family down, let other people down. at the end of the day, i was in a private area and there should be a certain amount of privacy one can expect. it was probably me being not enough prince. >> reporter: harry's self-image as a royal warrior was forged at an early age. the conflict between the two harrys, soldier and prince is the story of his life. it's not one he's terribly comfortable talking about. in fact, he's not terribly comfortable talking at all. especially to a press he clearly mistrusts and equally obviously dislikes. >> everyone says don't read it. it's always rubbish. i'm surprised how many people in the u.k. read it. i mean, everyone's guilty for buying the newspapers i guess. but hopefully no one actually
7:33 am
believes what they read. i certainly don't. you know of course i read it. if a story's written about he i want to know what's being said. but all it does is just upset me and anger me that people with get away with writing stuff they do. not just about me but everything and everybody. >> reporter: mistrust of the press, how far back does that go -- >> i think it's pretty obvious how far back it goes. to when i was very small. >> reporter: many explain the prince's frosty relationship with the media to the treatment they had as children. princess diana was a media magnate and we all know how that ended. now, a seasonal prince seems to grudgingly recognize he has a responsibility to be seen. especially in an environment that is ironically the most normal one he's ever in.
7:34 am
>> hopefully most people will look at me just going -- it's great to have you on board. great to have you wearing the same uniform, doing the same job as us. you know people don't sort of hassle me. it's just a quick glance and that's it, and move on. i hope i'm doing right. you know as i always say, work hard, play hard. i've always enjoyed my job. no matter however long that may hang on for i obviously have another job to fall back on. going to be busy. >> reporter: as long as harry is harry, apparently we'll be busy too. charlie? >> thank you. google [ male announcer ] nearly sixteen million people visit washington dc every year. some come to witness... some to be heard. we come to make

we reported last week that "fortune" magazine has named
7:39 am
google the best company to work for in america again. about 2.5 million people send their resumes to the high-tech giant every year. as john blackstone reports, human resources at this company is also a science. >> reporter: welcome to the good life at google. this campus in mountainview california offers employees comfort, privileges and perks that workers at most other companies can only envy. but what may seem like luxuries are actually good business, and google can prove that because the company studies everything it does. >> we try to bring as much analytics and data and science to what we do on the people side as our engineer do on the product side. >> reporter: lazlo bok heads the operations department. google's data mining gives detailed notion what pays off. >> when an employee starts on the first day, we have data that says if the manager shows up and
7:40 am
says, "hi, nice to meet you, you're on my team we're going to be working together," those people end up 15% more productive in nine months. >> google will be an -- >> reporter: to make sure the rest of the googleler's career remains productive is david radford's responsibility. >> we thought it would be a great idea to build a building that allowed us to try new things and find out what works and what doesn't work. >> reporter: he's in charge of creating the perfect environment. >> we call it our living laboratory. >> reporter: inside the living lab, radcliffe's team tests everything from floor to ceiling. diner booths, it turns out, can work better than traditional conference rooms. >> i would say casual collisions is what we try and create within the work environment. you can't school indo-- you can't schedule innovation or idea education. when we look at facilities around the world, we're looking for little opportunities for engineers or creative people to come together. >> reporter: the rooms google has created for those creative people include ski gondolas in
7:41 am

8:17 am
barack obama, sworn into a second term. senator, how do you think his second term will be different? how do you hope it will be different? >> we know the country is facing major challenges. we're starting with the challenge of bringing the debt down. but then there are so many opportunities for our country. the economy's now more stable. we can move forward with immigration reform. something i think you'll see bipartisan support, energy. the three of us care very much about that. and just other ideas to make sure that our workers are trained for the jobs that are available today. >> senator, things have to change? >> they do. i think that the american people are really tired of the partisan gridlock in washington. they want us to take a more pragmatic, less ideological approach to the issues. they want us to sit down negotiate and actually solve problems. >> senator heitkamp you are a new member to the senate. along with that are 100 new women in congress.
8:18 am
what's that like being part of this class of a record number of women? >> women are half the population. this is a pretty important job. it's something that needs to be done and we have to draw on the entire talent pool of america and half that talent pool is women. and so until we see equal representation, i think we haven't really tapped all the human resources of american. >> but the problem is not that women aren't getting elected in the same rate as men. it's that women aren't running. why is that? >> that is so true. women tend to think that they're not quite ready. and i always try to encourage women to take the risk, to roll the dice. >> you said if women were in charge, we would have a budget deal by now. with a record 20 women in the senate, is this going to get better? >> i certainly hope so. and i actually was serious when i made that comment. i honestly believe that if you put the 20 women into a room and
8:19 am
locked us up and threw in provisions occasionally that we would come out with a budget. >> let's talk about the issues gun control is certainly in the headlines. senator heitkamp you have received an "a" from the nra. senator kobishar, you have received an "f" from the nra. as women, where could you two agree and set an example, given that you are so far apart on the issue of gun control? >> i think one of the areas that we can agree is to sit down and analyze what actually can work. there's things that we can all agree on that need to be done. and one of our big pushes is going to be the mental health system and helping children if they have a child that's in the basement that they think could do this, where do they go today? that's the common ground we all share. >> heidi was a former attorney general. i was a former prosecutor.
8:20 am
the issues of school safety mental illness, we can get something down on background checks. obviously i'd like to do something on the high capacity magazines and other things. i'm hopeful when we sit down and look at these things that there can be common ground. we have to do it for the kids of america. people are expecting us to get something done here. >> you know it's important -- and you've just recognized it -- to understand that women span the ideological spectrum just as men do. we don't all agree, but what i do think we bring to this issue and so many others is a more collaborative approach and a willingness to try to find where the common ground is. >> there are now 20 women in the united states senate. how often do the female senators socialize? >> we get together for dinner about once a month. and i have to tell a quick funny story because after one of those dinners, one of my male colleagues was on the subway
8:21 am
with me going over for a vote. and he said i hear that you women got together last night. and he said, what did you talk about? and i just smiled sweetly and i said we were planning the coup. and he didn't know what to make of that. but it was a lot of fun. >> did you talk about them, meaning the male senators? >> oh, never at all! >> we never reveal what we talk about, which is one reason that these dinners have been so successful. >> right. >> it will be interesting to see whether more women in the senate means more bipartisanship. we'll see. and last night, michelle obama was a vision in red, and it was the vision of jason wu that came up with her inaugural ground sound. we'll talk with the superstar designer in studio 57, ahead on "cbs this morning."

>> were they red? >> yes. and i just -- red is what came to my head right away. and you know as a designer, i always have to trust my instincts. we don't have time to second-guess ourselves. this came to my head much like four years ago. and i had to go with my instincts. >> does she make any suggestions? did does anybody from the white house suggest what she might like to have or see, what color what -- >> well, last time she didn't. but this time when we were talking about it i think red is a really good color. oh mrs. obama thinks red is a good color, too. that sort of happened. i guess we were in sync from the beginning. >> how long did it take you to do it? >> it took a couple of months of back and forth. we worked closely with the team to perfect the dress. and so there was a lot of back and forth trips. but it was really just a wonderful process to be able to work on it and put so much into the dress that is a part of
8:33 am
history. >> yeah. >> beyond the honor of it what has it done for you? >> well, it's been amazing to have that exposure. i mean, four years ago, i was very, very new at the business. i've only been in business for about six years. so four years ago, i was -- >> two years when you got the first -- >> wow. >> i was sort of, you know in awe and -- you know awestruck the first time. this time, i like to think i'm a little bit more mature. i've grown up in the last four years. and i've -- >> you've grown up to the age of what, jason? >> i'm 30 now. >> you look like you're 12. i'm sitting here. i've been wu'd. this is a jason wu dress i wore in your honor today. your dresses are pricey. i got this on sale i'm happy to say. now that you have been chosen twice, does it mean your prices are going to shoot up through the roof? >> no. you know i've always concentrated on the designer price points. this year i came out with miss wu sold at nordstrom. slightly lower priced collection. and then available in nordstrom
8:34 am
now. it's -- it's really nice to be able to sort of translate my image and go the other way around to have more people wearing jason wu. >> congratulations. >> congratulations. >> thank you. >> as we mentioned, the music was another highlight of the inauguration. james taylor sang his version of "america the beautiful." he spoke with us before the event about the song that made him famous and how he finds inspiration. ♪ oh beautiful for spacious skies ♪ >> a champion of political causes, james taylor's not necessarily a writer of political songs. ♪ the highway ♪ [ applause ] ♪ >> so his music often explores the relationship between the personal and the political. >> much of it's
8:35 am
autobiographical. in a sense that can be political. >> that's right. i'm not a -- you know i don't write protest songs so much. there are songs that are sort of hymns to the environment. there are songs that are sort of spiritual hymns for agnostics sort of type things. i think that's a very american thing, too, is to invent not only your own country but to invent your own religion you're own spirituality. ♪ you got to help me to take a stand ♪ >> if i say "fire and rain," what's the first thought you have? >> i remember where i was when i wrote the tune. >> where were you? >> whether it first occurred to me. i was in a basement flat in london in the west end. ♪ oh i seen fire and i seen rain ♪ >> and the song just came to me.
8:36 am
and then -- >> just came to me? >> uh-huh. i mean you know, songs were -- that was happening frequently to me at that point. and -- >> why was that at that point this was happening to you? >> well, i had a lot of empty time. i had a lot of energy. i had a lot of yearning a lot of unsolved senses of -- i very much wanted to express myself and define myself. >> was that the most fertile period for you ever? >> yeah, yeah it was. i was really busting at the seams to express myself. ♪ i'm going to carolina in my mind ♪ >> where did that song come from? >> i was homesick. i was in london and i was -- i was just thinking about north carolina. i was so -- >> does it just flow once you got on to it? do the words just come? >> that certainly did. ♪ sweet baby james ♪
8:37 am
>> and when did "sweet baby james" come? >> it was six months to a year later. i was driving down route 95 to north carolina to -- to see my nephew, james, for the first time. and i was thinking what sort of song would be good for a little baby boy. ♪ rock-a-bye my sweet baby james ♪ >> you're happiest when you feel those songs -- >> that's right. that's the moment -- that's the most thrilling thing, the most delightful thing that happens to me is when the pieces fall together and it makes a song. >> what's that like? >> it's just very satisfactory. it's just very, you know -- it's like a puzzle fits together somehow. i mean we all do it. writing music is a lot like listening to music or appreciating music. with just a little bit of an
8:38 am
extra something to it. >> is that right? making music is akin to listening to music? >> yeah. i mean i think of songs as -- writing that i'm just the first person to hear the song. >> does it take pain? >> you know, that's one place it comes from. i mean that's one place -- pain is a big motivation for all manner of things. ♪ i'm already gone ♪ >> in the end, the 100 million albums no matter how many great honors, that's the honor that must be the most satisfying. it's your life. >> yeah. you know and it's -- it comes down to people, to be useful i think. ♪ oh i'm going to carolina ♪ >> there are a lot of people who from time to time find it you know, either pleasant or
8:39 am
therapeutic or celebratory or something to listen to one of my songs, to put it on or to go -- to go to a concert and hear that. that's what keeps me going. [ applause ] >> i have known him 46 years. >> wow. lucky you. lucky you, charlie. i love hearing the back story of how his brain works and how he comes up with a song. really, his voice is like no other. >> it's extraordinary. 100 million albums. >> yes, yes. i remember in high school i had to dissect a james taylor song "fire and rain." i've loved him ever since. you're lucky you can call him a friend. really nice. between lance armstrong and manti t'eo you'd think we'd learn to be a little more skeptical. we'll ask frank bruni of "the new york times" why is it so hard to find
8:40 am
today one final dry day with mild temperatures by the afternoon, high today expected in the 60s in the south bay, 50s out towards the coastline, chance of showers tomorrow.
8:41 am
8:42 am
what was your reaction to lance's doping confession to oprah? >> well -- i think that honesty's always the best and that the truth will set you free. it's got to be really hard to walk around knowing that you're not telling the truth about something. and so you know, i always contain that the truth is the best way to go. >> that is sheryl crow on "entertainment tonight" reacting to the confession of ex-boyfriend lance armstrong. oprah winfrey told an audience in edmonton canada, last night that she thinks armstrong can be a hero again. last week in an interview with her, lance armstrong admitted to using performance enhancing drugs. we learned the same day that manti t'eo never really had a girlfriend who died. these scandals raise questions about who can we really trust. let's talk about that no with "new york times" columnist frank bruinye. welcome. >> thanks for having me. >> what did you learn about
8:43 am
this, what it means in terms of trust? >> one of the things i learned is if a story potentially seems too good to be true, maybe it's too good to be true. >> didn't your mom say that? >> yeah. seven tour de france victories in a row, constant questions about whether he's doping. the strenuousness of his denials i think made a lot of us believe for a long time because i don't know about you but when i tell a white lie, it's all over my face. i don't ratchet up the denial to that gale force. >> sweating profusely never a good sign. >> that's me. >> you said there were two situations between lance and manti. >> i think each had ancredibly strong investment in stick -- an incredibly strong investment in sticking to their tale. we don't know when manti t'eo knew what he knew, to what degree he was a victim to the hoax, to what degree he conspired and let it happen. in both cases, there was a story that the public loved, the perpetuation of which really served their economic interests, kept the spotlight on them kept
8:44 am
them adored, and so they had -- they had powerful motivation to keep it going. >> and so do you agree with oprah that he could be a hero again? >> i don't know. in lance armstrong's case when they rolled that footage of the denials over time, he was almost grieved that anyone would ask him about. it i think the act of contrition that he'll need to perform has to be bigger and has to go on longer than we've seen. >> and the other element also is intimidation of people in order to keep the story. >> yes. i'm glad you mentioned that because -- with manti i'm not sure who the victims if any of the story are. with lance armstrong, there are a lot of victims. there are people he sued. there are people he defamed. in the interests of preserving -- perpetuating that lie he smeared a lot of people. and -- >> grievous damage to the sport. >> yes. yes. >> i think he will say he knows it's going to take more than one interview. i liked your thinking frank. you said when it comes to trust that we people, we as people believe in fairy tales.
8:45 am
>> that's right. >> what do you mean by that? i'm thinking i don't know if we believe in fairy tales. >> what i mean by that is i think with both of these stories we have to ask ourselves not just what was done to us but the degree it which we handed over you know our trust, gullibility. we love these big wonderful stories. take the manti t'eo situation. this girlfriend was never produced. >> yes. >> if you go back and you look at the transcripts of some of the interviews he did, now you say, gee no one asked this followup, that followup. we loved this tale of double grief and someone valiantly performing through it. and because of that, i think we deliberately didn't ask tough questions. now in retrospect it looks like we should -- >> because we like the story. like the story. always good to see you, frank bruni. always good to see you. when we come back we'll show how a small vineyard on long island, long island is how it's pronounced, made it to the inauguration when we come back. tomorrow coping with the death of a spouse much too soon in life. becky acheman's "saturday night

8:50 am
worked this 80-acre vineyard to turn out about 10,000 cases of wine annually. is there a pride in being in one of these emerging lesser known markets? >> yes, like the underdog in the football game. it's a little better when you beat the guy who's supposed to win the game. >> reporter: its wines is scored up to 91 points from win spectator, a rare feat for an east coast vineyard. >> these are our barrels for the red wines that we're aging for 2012. >> reporter: rich olsen-harbich is the master winemaker. he says their 2009 merlot was the perfect complement to the bison served at the luncheon. >> something i think it really validates the region as a whole and our company in particular. and it shows that i think long island wines have a seat at the table. >> reporter: new york senator charles schumer was a big reason bedell was served. as chairman of the inaugural
8:51 am
committee, he chose to feature new york wines. until a couple of weeks ago, bedell was better known for its artsy bottle labels inspired by michael lynne's other passion, contemporary art. after monday it may be better known for another lane -- a wine fit for a president. for "cbs this morning," seth doane, cutchogue new york. >> congrats to michael lynne. >> michael lynne, exactly. he thinks -- you think seth had a taste? >> i think he might have had a little -- >> nora, we miss you. come back. come home. >> see you tomorrow. i am. >> that does it for us. up next, local news. we'll see you tomorrow right here on "cbs this morning."
